Boers-Li Gallery is delighted to present “Jiang Zhuyun: Perhaps the End Precedes the Beginning” on July 19, 2018. This show marks the artist’s first presentation at the gallery.


“Perhaps the End Precedes the Beginning” draws from the phrase in T.S. Elliot’s Four Quartets, “… or say that the end precedes the beginning, and the end and the beginning were always there, before the beginning and after the end. ” Taking personal experience and memories as a point of departure, Jiang Zhuyun takes the retinal movements of his reading as a visual copy of the original text, to project his personal interpretations on order and pause, hindrance and feedback.


Jiang Zhuyun’s works span a wide range of artistic mediums. He is currently a lecturer at the School of Intermedia Art at the China Academy of Art. In 2017, he was shortlisted for the Huayu Youth Award.
